The extraordinary biography of Oleksii Arestovych shows that he has been searching for himself all his life. Biology, acting, military translation, theology, politics, psychology - this is only an incomplete list of the interests of the man who has become the personification of hope and a soothing image for millions of anxious people caught in the nets of panic.
It seems that he was chosen by the rebellious spirit of the philosopher Hryhoriy Skovoroda, whose primary meaning of human existence was considered self-knowledge. He embodied his ideas in works that had a spiritual influence on contemporaries and were graciously received by subsequent generations.
"The world was catching me, but it didn't." – engraved on the last refuge of Skovoroda in Kharkiv Oblast.

Could his soul be reconciled to the dirty kirze boots of the rashists trampling on his dear land?
